"Back to the town. All review with you hear it. Feminists off their Naomi Wolf. Like many true liberals, is concerned with what progressives are up to in the Biden administration. And she is speaking out against the alarmingly heavy handed moves of the current administration. Sailing those Mike Gallagher explains. Here was a tweet back in November of 2020 from Dr Naomi Wolf, she wrote. If I'd have known Biden was open to lock downs, as he now states Which is something historically unprecedented in any pandemic and a terrifying practice one that won't ever end because the elites love it. Would never voted for him. It's Naomi Wolf, who argues that nowhere in the Constitution doesn't say business owners and American citizens forfeit their rights. If there's a bad disease out there, we're witnessing the evolution. To a police state listened and author and feminist Naomi Wolf on Fox News with Tucker Carlson. It's not just that one tweet. I've been writing pretty much every day for months and months about what I see as Terrible crisis that were in that we have to recognize under the guise of a medic of real medical pandemic. We're really moving into a coup situation of police state situation, and that's not a partisan thing that you know is you say that transcends everything you and I might agree or disagree on that should bring together left and right to protect our constitution. We're absolutely moving into what I call step 10. I wrote a book in which I pointed out there were 10 steps that would be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy. Whether they're on the left or the right. They always do the same 10 things and now we're at Something I never thought I'd see in my lifetime. You described it really, really well, it is step 10, and that's the suspension of the rule of law. That's when you start to be a police state and we're here. There's no way around him. She's right. There is no way around this. Do you agree with her assessment that we've witnessed tyrants? Trying to shut down a democracy under the guise of cove it This was one of the most powerful five minutes of TV I've seen in a year. I'm in touch with many Patriots from all backgrounds in all walks of life. Who are horrified. I interviewed. For instance, Moms for Liberty, a group of conservative mom's in Florida, who are mobilizing to try to get schools open. They're so worried about what's happening to their kids, and I talked to Mom Jen, say famous Jim Nist and activist in San Francisco on the left. Who's also mom who's horrified. I You know, I've interviewed doctors. I've interviewed You know ordinary people restaurant owners from all walks of life who are absolutely unable to even articulate their fear and horror. Recognizing that the state has now crushed businesses kept us from gathering in in free assembly to worship as the first Amendment provides is invading our bodies as you mentioned, which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment. Is restricting movement finding us here in New York state. I could be fined $15,000 a day If I gather people, you know more than 10 or 25 people, depending on where in New York State I live. You know, which is a complete violation of the First Amendment. I mean, the violations go on and on and on. I've talked to restaurant owners who are looking at a sector in which tens of thousands of small businesses have been crushed. And why were they crushed? Not because of pandemic forced them to. There is no real science underlying a lot of these closures. It's because autocratic tyrants of the state and now that the national level are are creating a kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of Italian fascism in the twenties on there, they're using that to engage in kind of emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights rights to property rights to assembly rights to worship. And all of the rights that our Constitution guarantees. This is what it's gonna take. I'm normal. Americans on all sides of the political spectrum have got to start standing up against these bullies and these tyrants and these dog on dictators. And when you look back, you know, march of 2020. Lot of things started to move that kind of locked into place instead of policies that are kind of 360 degree full on totalitarian policies, So I think a lot of us are kind of in culture shock. Luckily or unluckily, I've been studying closing democracies for 12 years, so I recognized early on. You know, Once once I realized New York State had emergency powers, I know from history that no one gives up emergency powers willingly. They always drag it on a dragon on it. So every month I'm getting in my email and announcement that Governor Cuomo is extending emergency measures extending emergency measures on Lee from studying history. Do I know how predictable it is? When you start to have elected officials say, we are not going to follow the Constitution because there's a pandemic nowhere in the Constitution. Does it say all this can be suspended if there's a bad disease. Never thought I'd ever cheer from my couch. For a liberal feminist in.

Former top aide details sexual harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
"It is and what I was saying before. It is kind of a threat thing, But I worked with the guy that every woman referred to his creepy Joe, and he was a perfectly nice guy. But do we all know him? Is he? No, No, no, no, no. This is years ago. Those corporate America years ago. Not not that show. Not the one of the oval. Okay? No, no, no, no, no, not him. He's perfectly lovely. Um But like he would say to me that I had to work with Joe and he would be like he would always comment about all that such a nice dress. You're wearing something like that, But it was just the way that he said it would make me feel like alright, back off. Big guy, You know, like it just was the way, he said it was another co worker. A male co worker could say what? Why you look really necessary, but thank you because it was the way they said it. It's the vibe. It's the total vibe, but I don't know how you fix that vibe. Guys, I don't know. But if you're creepy, your creepy The heavy breathing is kind of a giveaway. Oh, if a woman looks you goes, I think we should take a shower. Now you're probably that guy. So now, of course, Cuomo's AIDS or denying that this happened. They deny the claims because she was very specific when she said she was on that plane in October, 2017 and and who was on who was seated next to her, she wrote, As I said that his press aide was to my right. A state trooper was behind us. Well, Cuomo's press secretary, a woman, by the way, kid. Caitlyn Garrard. Gerard dismissed the allegation, she said in a statement. As we said before Miss Boylan's claims of inappropriate behavior or quite simply false, and she cited flight logs detailing Cuomo's plane trips in October of 2017 and said there was quote no flight, where Lindsay was alone with the governor, a single press aide and a New York state trooper as she claimed in the block post, And she also cited a joint statement from several former aides who shared flights of the governor and Boylan during that period, who denied the That occurred as she described. We were on each of these October flights. This conversation did not happen. Yes. So that's all a lie. That's a complete lie. The statement itself is alive. Why it's provably alive. In fact, Lindsay Boylan, in her statement, never said she was alone with those people on the flight. She never once made that allegation. The Congress. The governor's office is inventing an allegation to knock down this is a strong man, Lindsay Boylan never said she was alone. With the governor, a press aide and in New York state trooper. She never said that there was nobody else on that flight or anything like that. The governor's office releases a statement claiming well, there were more people on that flight, contrary to what she claims in her block. Plus, she never claimed that never for a moment. The only thing she claimed, was that the press aide and the New York State trooper were near her. When the governor suggested that they play strip poker. That's the on Lee thing, she alleged. So even in the defense here we see dishonesty come out of Cuomo's office immediately. Their first instinct is to lie. Yeah, well, this sexual harassment working group, which is an organization formed by seven former New York state legislative employees who witnessed or experienced harassment in the state's political landscape. I have called for an independent investigation enter out into her allegations, and you have Congresswoman Elise Stefanik calling for Cuomo to resign. In the wake of both of these scandals with the nursing home handling with coronavirus deaths. And now this sexual harassment allegation as well, she said he has earned the title is worse Governor in America and now every New Yorker knows that he's a criminal sexual predator. And she said, You know, I called for this when these allegations came out in December on December 14th that was one of the first and on Lee elected officials in New York state to call for an investigation.

Now it starts with cuomo's inexplicable decision back in march two thousand twenty two order nursing homes to accept recovering covid nineteen patients even if they were still testing positive a recent. Ap investigation found that. At least nine thousand recovering patients were sent back to nursing homes and long term care facilities a number that is forty percent larger than his administration had previously admitted is unquestionably worsened.

James investigated situation found that his people may have under counted the number of deaths associated with nursing homes by fifty percent cuomo.

New York Gov. Cuomo Lashes Out at Critics As Outcry Over Nursing Homes Grows
"It's criticism of new york state coronavirus response. That's irritated governor cuomo to the point of lashing out specifically criticism of how the governor's office has been counting the deaths of cove patients in nursing homes. So i asked jimmy veal kind to take me back in. Explain how this data error could lead the governor to reveal a less savory side of his personality a side of himself. he's managed to keep under wraps at least for the last few months it turns out this data error. It's tangled up in some policy decisions. The cuomo administration made about nursing homes way back at the beginning of the pandemic. You have to start in the first week of march where there were lots of unknowns. Far more was was not known them was known and governor cuomo had had just sort of his did over a slow glide shutdown of the state finally came to pass on on march twenty. It took him a while to make the decision. There is a week of sort of incremental closures. Different people debated whether or not he should have acted faster. But that's sort of was was decision point number one decision point number two was concerned about hospital capacity in certain that the fires it already spread pretty widely. More people are getting affected in governor. Cuomo talks time and time again about images that he saw from italy where hospitals were overrun where patients were outside on gurneys or stuffed into hallways and people were essentially being turned away and he said so often that that was his biggest fear so in that environment hospital. Executive talked to the governor's team in said we've traveled. We have patients who no longer need to be. Hospital is but they're sitting in our beds because we have no place the discharge them the normally would get discharged homes either. I kind of probably or for a long-term residents but the nursing homes were saying we're really scared. We don't want these covy positive patients and so you have this tension between nursing homes and hospitals and what new york state did was it. It basically listened to the concerns of hospitals so march twenty fifth the state health department issued a directive which said that a nursing home could not refuse to admit a patient which it would otherwise be able to care for solely on the basis of being positive for covid nineteen a nursing. Home operator said this was effectively in order to take these patients in some of immediately objected. They immediately said we're concerned. This is going to exacerbate the spread of covid nineteen facilities but the order stood. Was there evidence that it did exacerbate the spread in their facilities. Well this is where it gets tricky. We know that thousands of patients were transferred from hospital into nursing homes around the state retreat march twenty fifth and may ten when this health department directive was re modified rescinded revert. You can you can take your so. The question is did. The corona virus come to nursing homes the result of this in july. The state health department put out a report which looked at the data and it looked at the dates of death. The dates of first positive cases in nursing homes around the state. It's inclusion was that in most nursing homes. The first introduction of corona virus happens before any of these patients were transferred before the directive was issued on march twenty fifth. It was staffers bringing it in. They lead that. It was safran because the correlation because the infection rates in nursing homes correlated with the surrounding community right. Obviously a nursing. Home doesn't exist. In a bubble people work there. You know somewhere else to live. And the health department said this was actually the factor even though nursing home operators said from the beginning. Hey this order. It's not helping. It's only hurting and to this day. There are operators to say that they believe it contributed to the spread. If not in some instances was the primary ause of the spread. It's unclear even now whether this policy forcing nursing homes to take in covid positive patients affected newark's total death toll that's because of a pretty grim calculus. It's possible that additional deaths in nursing homes were actually offset because freeing hospital beds allowed more coronavirus patients to be treated what we do know now. At least is that cova deaths in nursing homes. Were not being tallied correctly. That's because of a patient became so sick. They were transferred back to a hospital.

"Aimed at changing up the way things are accounted for within the state's nursing home industry. Right as governor, Cuomo and his administration are being investigated for how they handle Cove. It really related matters and nursing homes during the pandemic. New York lawmakers say the goal is more transparency and accountability in this package of bills. One measure would force nursing homes to post any violations on their website, another calls for more stringent inspections and infection control measures. Richard Mullet with a long term care community coalition says few fines have been given out since the start of the pandemic. The only thing that really stopped many facilities from providing extremely sub standard care is the threat of a financial penalty. Another bill takes direct aim at Governor Cuomo mandating the state compile nursing home deaths, regardless of whether the resident was transferred to a hospital. Cuomo isn't finding too many in his corner at this point, White House press secretary Jen Psaki on ABC s this week declined to defend or criticized the governor. There, of course, will be a process. The investigations will leave that to others to determine the appropriate law enforcement authorities to determine how that path is going to move.

You've been connecting with constituents and you've been working really hard to get the state New York state back on its feet. So I just WanNa know you know. How are you doing? Thank you for asking and I am doing fine. My normal life would've been going from my home. In the western part of New York Buffalo catching as three a M wakeup call and getting out of flight, five to go, New York City, and then maybe try out to Long Island for. For a few hours, and then up to our state capital, and maybe you know, cover the whole state by midnight, so to made parsley in his less travel and wars, zooming moving around the state is what I'm doing, so I have been able to actually touch. More constituencies speak to more elected officials I host meetings with physicist WBZ conference statewide yesterday that I would not have been able to probably pull off with the other schedule half, and so you whether it's talking to chambers women on businesses, faith based community I'm out there just talking about what our objectives are in. In terms of meeting the healthcare crisis, but now we're in the more desirable phase, which is talking about how reopened in a smart way based on the metric, so it is all consuming, but still very fascinating and We're GONNA come out of this with much more knowledge, understanding appreciation for people from all walks of life that were sort of quietly behind the scenes, and never got the recognition they deserve, and I also think this gives us an opportunity to state to really redefine ourselves and launched into the future, and sees on some of the best practices that have emerged out of. Of this crisis. Yeah, I'm glad you're doing well, and you've been working really hard to move the state into the next phase of a lockdown. Honestly I have to say it does make me a bit nervous. Given what's at stake? States begin to reopen too soon. So as are you in right now new. York state depends on the corner of the state of Western. New York upstate to just much that moved into phase to my way of buffalo buffets too early next week. Face to opens up a lot more of the businesses that he will been anxious to go to hair salons and. Retail with many limitations May. There's no nails being done his facials. It is just get a quick haircut with someone who's wearing literally a face shield and has had tested the taken test for Kobe before. They could. Even I'll serve you, so we have very tight restrictions to deal with just what you're talking about. The fear that people are going to have about. Emerging from his deep slumber. Being people have been doing everything they could to sacrifice, but to keep themselves and their families safe, and now they want. They have to be able to trust us in government that followed the doctors who followed the experts, and then we on the metrics that we feel it's safer to go out taking the same precautions we've talking about for. For three months now and so that's why we have the ability to open up slowly. We're not. We're not talking about restaurants. We'll be theaters or larger gatherings, just slowly opening up society and the economy, but nationally we passed this really grim milestone. We have now over a hundred thousand deaths from Colbert nineteen. You know it's still very scary to me on the. The other hand lots of businesses, especially small businesses. They're really hurting financially. There seems to always be this pushing pull. You know we're state. You're caught between which takes priority. Yes, and we are priority all throughout. This has been public health. We wouldn't be talking about reopening. Despite understanding deeply how extraordinarily painful this is for our small businesses and all the employers and I. I come out of a small business family I know the suffering that goes on, and you put your livestream into a low shopper, little of business and almost sign. You don't know if you're GONNA. Make it to the next month or not, so so what we've always said. Public Health comes I mean we can always bring back our economy. He'll be painful tough. Excruciating for our state, revenues are states in your body, sixty five billion dollar whole over the next couple of years already, so we're GONNA have to make some tough decisions, probably some cuts, but if people aren't alive, not protecting public health than what are we therefore so that is what has driven US early talking about reopening. Because we've seen the numbers decline really quite well now, it took a long time to reach the plateau. And if you follow along in New York state has a very transparent way to see what's going on at four dot ny dot. Gov You can really see our hostels ation rate, and it's really going downhill. The number of people use as down number of new cases. Way Down and we didn't see that we wouldn't be talking about reopening if we had stronger broader social safety nets. Nets here in the US what would be ideal in terms of a reopening schedule right in I'm thinking about New Zealand. You know I knew there are comedy is a lot smaller than ours you know, but they had a really strict walked down early on. You know, accommodate suffer bid. They're able to really crush the curve really quickly, so I guess the question is, how would we? We operate if our social safety nets were such that you know, we didn't have to worry as much about the economy, you know what would are reopening process. Look like well probably operate very differently, and what troubles me the most is that women have been hit so hard by this wing. Women were women than men are filing for unemployment. They're. They're not in the industries that are. Are being called back the earliest like construction manufacturing, those are very male, dominated field, so women will be going without their paycheck, and you longer period of time, and on the other hand, those who are working are in the most at risk jobs made therein the ones. They're the ones that are out there on the front line, a seventy eight percent of healthcare workers, the nurses and People that are working in the cafeterias and the Kitchens and and places where they exposed. Those are all women, and so women are really. Really caught in a bad squeeze here at this pandemic either unemployed, and if you're single head of household, you're having trouble. Put Food on the table. A hope and your unemployment checks come in, but let him have been anomaly delayed because of the overwhelming. The system or you're out there exposing yourself every day because you need that paycheck you going and working in a kitchen making someone's. Someone's food that they can pick up curbside and positive. Free back the virus your house, so the Connie's important, and it'd be nice if people knew that they didn't have to risk themselves. We also have to keep some basics functions going and we. We need people to still going to the grocery stores and sell our food and go into the pharmacies of make sure we have prescription. Prescription so those tend to be women, which is just a fascinating study, and whether or not society properly recognizes and appreciation to end compensates women the way they should. No, you're absolutely right under that something we've talked about before and I know that something that you've specifically been focused on, and even before the pandemic I know that New York state have a lot of policies in place that. That were really targeted towards paid family. Leave, you know guaranteed paid sick. Leave childcare funding, so you really had some strong policies in place for women. Already you having those policies in place already will help women in your state. Do Better following this absolutely better than they would have been for sure compared to other states that don't have a minimum wage that allows you to make more. More than eighteen thousand dollars a year. You now can earn thirty two thousand dollars if you're making the fifteen dollars and that's that's life changing for a mom with a couple of kids, so yes, we have more safety nets in place, and to think about how important paid sick leave is in the early part of this crisis in other states who had people showing up to work healthcare? Healthcare, workers or people who are working in restaurants, cooking food. Who could be sick during the virus showing some symptoms? But if they didn't show up, they didn't get a paycheck in New York state. We changed any before the virus to say then if it's a small business, your tunnel. At least five.

New York in our last episode Eliot Spitzer the heroic roic sheriff of Wall Street was elected governor on the promise to clean up the Cesspool of Albany politics but six months later governor Spitzer is at war with his chief rival Senate majority leader Joe Bruno one of the most powerful men in the state to war. That's about to get a whole lot worse. This is episode to an affair air to remember the party at Senator. Bruno's upstate farm on July fourth has often been a festive affair but for Joe Bruno no no the holidays always a mixed bag. He loves the local parades and the high fives and handshakes from the people in the county. Who Love Him? Because he's gotten them baseball stadiums parks and playgrounds playgrounds. Some with his name on them but his thoroughbreds are always spooked by the fireworks tonight. He's justice jumping after a conversation with Fred Dicker from the Post Bruno's finally on the attack if Dicker reports this right come tomorrow morning he might just get the upper hand on this whole travel fiasco. It's been a tough few weeks last month. The Times Union obtained a grand jury subpoena to look into the specifics of an ongoing FBI. Investigation around Bruno's outside business interests with substantial and important business. People as Bruno's firm calls clients it turns out the feds are particularly interested in Bruno's close relationship with jared Abruzzi a wealthy businessman. WHO's been lobbying to run the state's multibillion dollar horse racing franchise Habra says? He has arranged fundraisers for Bruno. Taken him on vacation in his private jet and paid him nearly a half million dollars in so-called consulting fees. They're also looking into something less colorful but equally as lucrative Bruno's employment with right investment services firm is paying Bruno a large consulting fee for referring clients to right and now this thing about misusing state aircraft is front and center an ethics charge. That could throw him out of office. Bruno is certain. This is Spitzer's endgame but Bruno. The weapon that Spitzer does not Roger Stone stone is an icon of American politics. He he made his reputation back in the seventies as Richard Nixon's dirty trickster. And he's proud of him. He sports a giant Tattoo of Nixon. Face on his back he leads. It's a colorful personal life. Often visiting swingers clubs with his wife on stones resume is A. Who's who of American Politics Ronald Reagan? Bob Dole George Bush. PS Two models that have served him well of the years attack attack attack never defend and admit nothing deny everything launch counterattack so in June when Bruno has had enough of Spitzer in his attacks on the Republican majority he turned to Roger. Stone stone is is a master at manipulating the press. He and his team collect negative stories on Spitzer and feet a steady drift journalists trying to paint him as an angry thug. And a spoiled elitist Brat. Stones fee is twenty thousand dollars a month. The money helps support stones expensive habits. He collects Jaguars and fancy clothes. There are more than one hundred custom made suits in his closet. But there's no denying the dirty. TRICKSTER gets results so far Joe Bruno does not regret right paying stones bill on Thursday July fifth at six am Eliot Spitzer is returning to the governor's mansion from. I'm an early morning jog. You walks into the kitchen grabs the paper. He knows the New York Post Fred. Dichter's is publishing something and it won't be flattering but what's on. The front page stops him in his tracks. The headline reads God's Trooper Snoop on Bruno he drops into the nearest chair. Picks up a phone. He's not happy governor. DOPP you seeing this. I'm looking at it right now. Governor says Governor Spitzer targeted state Senate Senate majority leader Joseph Bruno for an unprecedented state police surveillance program. It's a total spin job governor. They're saying I directed state troopers. There's to spy on Bruno then singled him out. I told Dicker. The police started keeping records when Mike Long from his own party. for Christ sakes complained about Bruno. Upbringing armed troopers to his fundraiser. But long denies it looked at Bruno's quote here he says this is like something you'd expect in a third world country. We're some dictator. Has His enemies follow to see how they could either do something to them or disgrace them. This is dangerous in a free country just loves to play the victim. You know that it'll blow over governor a few days a week tot except that it doesn't blow up in a television interview later that day. Bruno call spitzer a bully and a hypocrite and his aides hoodlums thugs the next day. Bruno calls for a criminal probe into Spitzer's tactics. Dick's admit nothing. Deny everything launch counterattack. The media quickly dubs the affair trooper gate. The question is no longer whether whether Bruno's been flying state aircraft to five thousand dollar a plate fundraising dinners. Now it's how dangerous and conniving is Eliot Spitzer in a one two panch Bruno has just turned the tables attorney general. Andrew Cuomo has been very vocal about his desire to to one day. Be Governor. What better place to pave the way than your attorney? General's office worked for Spitzer now. Cuomo has the opportunity of a lifetime. He's been been called on to investigate corruption in Albany by two of the most powerful men in the state. You'll need to tread lightly so there's no blow back on his office. He and his team get to were requesting emails and records and conducting interviews three weeks later on July twenty third Komo issues report. It's long and it scathing. The investigators find there was an orchestrated campaign by the governor's Office to obtain and provide information to the news media with the help of the state police to essentially discredit Joe Bruno. It says the governor staff ordered the state police to keep special records of Bruno's whereabouts when he traveled with police escorts in New York City and create create records from memory if they didn't exist. It concludes by saying while Spitzer's office had broken no laws and there was no spying as Bruno contended. There was a clear breach of ethics. Cuomo places the blame at the feet of three of Spitzer staff. The governor for now is deemed innocent report also oh clears Bruno of misusing. The states air fleet the recall the state's policy horace recommends tightening it up for the governor who sailed into office is promising ethics reform. This doesn't look good on the morning of July twenty third governor Spitzer and his team in gathering his office at the capital and reread the report. Before it's officially released by Komo's office. Then with a sigh he leans back in his chair girds himself. He's about to do something he's rarely done. In his life eat crow he picks up the phone and dials. Joseph Bruno. What can I do for you governor Joe? I owe you an apology. I had no idea what Darren DOPP was up to what my office was unto. I know it caused a hell of a lot of problems. And I'm sorry for that. Well that's mighty magnanimous of you governor. Joe Jesus Elliott Elliot. You've had two state troopers on my heels following the while you're fucking around with the press painting me as a bad actor you are a hypocrite. You think I don't know why you're calling casino exactly why so you can tell the press and you said sorry all right so I tried. You have my apology. Please exempted appreciate your call governor for Bruno. It's a case of too little. Too late Eliot Spitzer puts down the phone. He's tried to do the right thing now. He has to do one more unpleasant thing. Put Communications Director. Darren DOPP on indefinite unpaid leave whether DOPP acted on his own or whether Spitzer told hold him to leak. Bruno's travel details doesn't matter it will look better to the people of New York for someone to go down then eat more crow at a press conference the Red Room where he tells the crowd of reporters that he is accountable for what goes on in the executive branch and he accepts responsibility for the actions of his office he says his administration has grossly mishandled the situation he tells them he apologized to Senator Bruno personally this morning. It's been a very bad day. Even the New York Times jumps in with an editorial saying the episode has the smell of an old fashioned dirty trick and if Spitzer pitzer fails to clean up his own house his ability to clean up Albany could be severely compromised four days later on July twenty seventh state. Senator Dean skeletons pushes. The issue. Further scallops grew up in Rockville Centre. New York in a family of Greek descent apart from college. He never left his small town. An attorney who still practices on the side he's been at the legislature for more than a quarter century. He knows how to win influence in one of his earliest elections. He persuaded Ronald Reagan to stump for him. scalise is also practiced in the ways. Albany works and perfectly happy with the culture of trading favors. He's also widely the known as Bruno's attack dog skeleton pulls no punches maligning Spitzer. He recommends his committee on Investigations and Government Operations Review Trooper Trooper Game.

We have seen what can happen when our government stands still old in the face of great traveling and inevitable change in government that works for those who hold off as not goes who put them in there. Like Rip Van Winkle the legendary character created by the New York author Washington Irving New York has slipped through much of for the past decade while the rest of the world has passed us by sitting among the dignitaries in the audience is Republican Senate Majority Leader. Joe Bruno he's a first generation Italian American and there's a swagger to his style with his tan camel hair coat red silk scarf jeff and his full head of thick grey hair he looks more like a Mulberry Street. Ward boss than an Albany powerbroker next to him is the Assembly Speaker Sheldon silver whereas a black wool coat and a black hat worn to Russian. Immigrants Silver is a Democrat from Manhattan's lower east side and like most professional men from his neighborhood but he dresses conservatively informally known as Shelley. And Joe they are the two most powerful men in state government after the governor they have been adversaries for more than twenty years. Although the old saying about keeping your friends close and your enemies closer was not lost on either of them in reality they are neither friends snore enemies they are simply to men with immense power who've had no choice but to recognize and respect the power the other holes both come. I'm from working. Class roots both rose to power and prominence through sheer determination and will both have heard more than a few inaugural speeches in their thirty years of governance events together but never have they heard one like this and Bruno doesn't like it turns the silver scowling. He's talking about us. Silver is an exactly please either but in typical fashion. He's inscrutable. Stare straight ahead. He's just puffing his chest up. Joe Draw like this at first. The man's been governor for less than ten minutes and already he's throwing US under the boss. So we'll take the subway easy for you to say. Your side is on the upswing. He's not after your see and to think I actually. Actually you still like the guy. He sent me a Christmas card this year. For Christ's sake. I wouldn't wait by the mailbox next Christmas Joe. Bruno isn't much on patients and he's pissed before the election spitzer swore they would run together. Said Bruno's problems would be with silver. Not Him what Bruno understood that to mean was that they had packed. Bruno would allow Spitzer to govern and Spitzer would allow Bruno to keep his majority quid pro. Oh clo- you scratch my back. I'll scratch yours. That's how it works in Albany but then before he even took office Spitzer pull the fast. Uh he appointed a republican state. Senator Michael Balboni to head up the Office of Homeland Security leaving his seat vacant Balboni. That guy wouldn't have even run if Bruno hadn't convinced him and now his seat is open. A seat traditionally held by a Republican but with this new wave of Democrats. There's no guarantee it will stay that way. When the special election comes around Bruno knows in his gut that Spitzer purposely appointed Republican senator to vacate a seat so he could get another Democrat into the Senate this is not politics as usual? This is a personal affront. Spitzer is clearly gunning for him and if he thinks he's going to put a Democrat in that seat he's got another thing coming that's his territory. This is about survival and what Spitzer has failed to grasp is that he can't get anything done without Dan. Rutz help there are three keys to the kingdom and he and silver whole two of them on day one. Everything changes was one of Spitzer's. Catch your campaign slogans. And he's ready to make it come true. He has an ambitious agenda. He intends to accomplish and he's going to start with something big ethics reform. He wants to send a clear message to the voters and lawmakers he did not come to Albany to play. DISC governor means business but while shelley and Joe might play along at first each of them holds near absolute power of their chambers and rule. ooh like strict no nonsense headmasters they tell their respective parties how to vote on legislation and Hutu. Back for what they're not about to give up all that power not without a fight. They wield their power the old fashioned way with money namely giant chunk of taxpayer cash in the amount of two one hundred million dollars written right into the budget under a line called Community Projects Fund also known as member items member. Item sounds a lot better than pork. Which is essentially what it is doled out in secret? Bruno and silver can spread the money around any way they see fit the faster. A legislator waxes tail the bigger the allocation failed to do what leadership asks and you may not be invited back to Albany and all but within the first two weeks of January governor Spitzer announces a new plan for how the member items will be distributed in an ethics reform bill and it will no longer be in secret now. Each dollar dollar amount will be listed as a line item in the budget with the name of the recipient available for the public to see and must be approved by the governor. It's all part of his plan to make Albany for transparent Joe. Bruno actually pledges his support of the ethics reform. As long as the reforms are announced as a joint effort. He knows how to play this game. He can look like he's playing by the Sheldon silver agrees and says he'll be happy to make the announcement himself. He knows good press on when he sees one. The three of them appear together smiling for reporters. The Governor the Assembly Speaker in the State Senate majority leader. Usually it's these three power positions behind closed doors today. They're publicly pledging. Mutual respect cooperation and transparency parents. It's a bleak winter day toward the end of January Eliot Spitzer is preparing for an important press conference tells else's aid.
